Dental implants replace teeth that have become irreversibly damaged. Because of the many advantages over other options, there are a number of reasons you might pick them over the other choices available to you.
Dental Implants Stay in Place
Other teeth replacement options, such as dentures, are meant to be removed at certain times. To reduce the risk of swallowing your dentures, you’re meant to remove them before you go to bed each night. You should also remove them for proper cleaning, too. The fact that dentures can be taken out means there’s a risk they will come loose in your mouth and potentially be swallowed. In fact, fish bones, followed by other types of bones, followed by dentures, are what most often end up in adults’ digestive tracts, according to a new review, from Düsseldorf University Hospital, of adults accidentally swallowing things. There’s also a risk that you’ll lose them, if you misplace the dentures or forget to put them back in.
